Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME)

The Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME)* has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education (under 'Health Care') as a programmatic accrediting agency for nurse-midwifery education programs since 1982. In 1994, ACME approved criteria to accredit direct-entry midwifery education programs; the first program was preaccredited in April 1996.  ACME currently accredits programs offering nurse-midwifery and midwifery programs.

ACME is administratively and financially autonomous from the American College of Nurse-Midwives.

The ACME National Office address is: Suite 1550
                                                                      8403 Colesville Road
                                                                      Silver Spring, MD 20910
